SWE 440 ind Scheduling and Tracking

Based on your previous report and after reviewing the project plan, the CIO has identified several concerns. The CIO has asked you to conduct research on project budgeting and estimation tools. You have been asked to incorporate project estimates techniques using PERT, Analogous, and Delphi into the software development plan. Make sure you also could include a discussion on Metrics as part of the project deliverable.
Also you will be submitting the overall plan, known as the Key Assignment Draft in the upcoming Discussion Board for a peer review. Please make sure your overall plan includes the items mentioned above and these items:
